something has gone horribly wrong 8-p

Recorded on January 16, 1928 in New York City. This is another mountain ballad that appears to be the product of British ballads that were combined after they reached America. A variation on the "murdered girlfriend" theme in that here the girlfriend takes her own life. Kazee was a baptist minister who sang with a "recital" voice, rather than the raw singing style that is more prevalent in recordings of this type.

Subject: This is special
This is something special. The musical accompaniment is odd enough that it could be modern. Listen.
